Bravo’s latest show, ‘Online Dating Rituals of the American Male,’ follows two men each episode as they explore the world of online dating. The men don’t use traditional dating sites like Match.com or newer dating apps like Tinder. Instead, they use Tryst – an app created specifically for the show.
In late 2013, the creators of the show reached out to Sway Network about creating an app for the show’s cast members to use that would make it easy to find dates online and then meet up in person, with the whole process being filmed.

The remaining award winners will be announced on March 23 throughout Bravo’s Sunday night programming, with the final two winners announced on the 11pm EST airing of ‘Watch What Happens Live.’ Read more
